Aflatoxin B1 is the most common in food and among the most potent genotoxic and carcinogenic aflatoxins. Aflatoxin M1 is a major metabolite of aflatoxin B1 in humans and animals, which may be present in milk from animals fed with aflatoxin B1 contaminated feed. Having reliable, cost-effective, flexible screening tools that can be applied on many different matrices is the best way to perform the monitoring along the food and feed chains and guarantee their compliancy and safety.
Ideally, every commodity and finished product would be analysed for every possible contaminant. However, even when using a HACCP-based approach, product testing budgets can quickly inflate to staggering numbers. The solution is a single multiplexed kit that is able to detect a group of relevant targets in a single sample preparation.
